Tom Petty - Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers




This film has had a long journey, and we are excited to finally share this with you. Through unprecedented access to the family and our archives, Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers feels like sitting in a room with Tom.

The acclaimed documentary film will see its theatrical release on Tom’s birthday, October 20, for a one-night global celebration via Trafalgar Releasing, with encore screenings in select cinemas on October 21. Experience the film on the big screen with immersive surround-sound before the YouTube Originals worldwide release for free in full 4K resolution on Tom Petty’s YouTube Channel later this year.

Tickets are on sale now at TomPettyFilm.com.

The uplifting 89-minute documentary was directed by award-winning filmmaker Mary Wharton (Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President, Sam Cooke: Legend, Elvis Lives!, The Beatles Revolution) and won the Audience Award at SXSW 2021 and Best Documentary Film at the Boulder Film Festival. The picture digs deeper into 2020’s critically acclaimed certified gold reissue, Wildflowers & All The Rest (Warner Records), which revealed the long anticipated second half of Tom’s autobiographical masterpiece.

Tom Petty, Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers offers a unique look into the creative mastery and turbulent personal life of the legendary rock star, and captures the period of 1993-1995, when Tomworked with legendary producer Rick Rubin for the first time. The film is an unvarnished look at Petty that features never-before-seen footage drawn from a newly discovered archive of 16mm film as well as new interviews with album co-producer and Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell along with Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and many more.

Produced by Peter Afterman with executive producers Mary Wharton, Dan Braun and Adria Petty and presented by Warner Music Entertainment and Warner Records, the documentary illuminates an artist at the height of his powers, providing an intimate and moving look at an enigmatic icon.

Re: Tom Petty - Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of Wildflowers

I'd love to see this in theaters but I will be fine with waiting to watch it on Youtube. Its been making the rounds of the film festivals for a while now so I'm glad to see it has a distributor on/with Youtube. Especially given that the estate is milking fans with the limited releases that are not limited release. I think the $250 sweatshirts and sweat pants are egregious and something Tom would have never allowed.
